Event Description

A test for my confidence on Crib Goch.

Park in the free layby just east of Pen y Gwryd (SH 665 559) at 9am to avoid some of the traffic on Crib Goch. We’ll try the new path up to Pen y Pass from Pen y Gwryd. Usual route up Crib Goch, Crib y Ddysgl, Yr Wyddfa, Y Lliwedd.

If you’ve never scrambled before and don’t know what Crib Goch is like please wait until someone with a rope and leadership skills organizes this walk.

Obviously not suitable for dogs unless yours is particularly good on rock.

Very weather dependent but I’ll be going out somewhere else if it is not suitable for Crib Goch. May do Sunday instead of Saturday if weather is better. Keep an eye on the Forum.

Don’t know the “stats” and can’t be bothered working out the mileage. I’ve done the round from and to Pen y Pass in 5 hours but I’m guessing we’ll take longer.
